Freshening Up School Food

Articles like this are great. A new trend has local farmers selling their crops directly to schools. Adam Gorlick of the Associated Press reports:
"I care about what I eat, so I'm happy the school is doing what it can to help make meals healthier," said Joe Levering, a sophomore at Clark University who was surprised that the carrots he had at lunch Thursday came from a farm in Lunenberg, about 25 miles from the campus.

"And it's a great idea to support local farms so they could stay in business," he said.

Clark is one of about a dozen colleges in the state participating in the Massachusetts Farm to School Project, a three-year-old program that helps eliminate the middleman in food distribution by having more farmers bring their fruits, vegetables, and dairy products directly to campuses.
I don’t know about the dairy though.
